James Bond actress Tanya Roberts mistakenly reported dead after collapsing in her home
Popular Hollywood actress Tanya Roberts has been hospitalized after she collapsed in her home and is not dead after her publicist Mike Pingel had mistakenly reported her to have passed away earlier on Monday. Pingel later told The Associated Press that the 65-year-old had collapsed in her home, but was still alive and remained in a poor health condition at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she was believed to have passed away on Sunday.
In his statement, Pingel told that Robert's partner, Lance O'Brien informed him that he held Tanya Roberts and felt that she "seemed for him to slip away." Owing to the COVID-19 restrictions in the hospital, O'Brien could not see her, but was given permission to visit her on Sunday for a final goodbye, Pingel said. He stated that Roberts had not tested positive for COVID-19 and is awaiting updates on her condition.
Multiple media outlets had reported that Tanya Roberts had died after Pingel's initial statement. Soon after Roberts was reported to be dead, her co-star on the hit period sitcom That '70s Show, Ashton Kutcher informed other stars of the show on Twitter that she was still alive after they posted their condolences. Roberts had played the character Midge Pinciotti on That '70s Show, which ran for eight seasons. Check out Kutcher's tweets to his co-stars on the show Topher Grace and Debra Jo Rupp about Tanya Roberts still being alive:

Tanya Roberts' most notable role remains playing geologist Stacey Sutton opposite Roger Moore in the 1985 James Bond venture, A View to a Kill, while also appearing in fantasy adventure films such as The Beastmaster and Hearts and Armour.
